Thanks, Tangent! (A Brag)

Scarecrow anthology Rhonda Parrish

“Judge and Jury”

Is it okay to start the new year with a brag? Is that okay?

I might do it anyway.

I just got an email pointing me to Tangent‘s 2015 Recommended Reading List and I’m on it. Twice. Both stories with three stars (in their 0-3 star system). Continue reading

A Good Review and a Castle

Scarecrow anthology Rhonda Parrish

“Judge and Jury”

Totally just sharing something exciting, don’t mind me.

But today I found this review — in Tangent, no less — of Scarecrow, following up on reviewer Eric Kimminau’s take on Corvidae. And just look at what he had to say about my story.

“Judge & Jury” by Laura VanArendonk Baugh is the reason I had to review Scarecrow. It’s a continuation of “Sanctuary” from Corvidae. I simply had to see how it came to a conclusion. You can read my review of “Sanctuary” here….. If you read Corvidae, you must read Scarecrow, if for this story alone.

I’m pretty sure I floated down the stairs for an hour after that.

(Warning: there are major spoilers at the reviews. Use link caution.)

SCARECROW releases today!

Scarecrow anthology Rhonda ParrishRemember that lovely cover I showed you last week? Now it’s got a whole book to go with it. Scarecrow releases today!

Yes, I know it’s been a busy few weeks, what with Corvidae and Mythic Indy and Scarecrow and all, but Scarecrow has my story “Judge and Jury,” which continues the story begun in Corvidae. Each can be read alone, but together they’re like, um, chocolate and peanut butter. Which actually sounds really good right now…. Continue reading

Corvidae, edited by Rhonda ParrishWell, I got up about 25 hours ago, and my body thinks it’s 8 am Danish time, and I just finished a 9-hour flight and a 4-hour car ride with an 8-week old puppy, so this is gonna be a short post.

More later on Denmark and that puppy, but right now I gotta crash. /faceplant into bed/
